Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for 2018

It’s that time of year again. Forget the holidays, Valentine’s Day is when more men struggle and scramble to pick out the perfect gift for their significant other. It’s such a challenge. I think there is so much social (media) pressure to choose the most romantic, most thoughtful, or most perfect presents. But here’s the real secret, it doesn’t have to be perfect, just sincere. Pay attention to what she likes, what her interests are. (If you aren’t doing that on a regular basis already, I would suggest starting.) However, sometimes we all need to get a little help.

Any suit shines as something special…

Gift Guide: The Casually Styled Man

I think adding some style to a casual outfit can be harder than to a dressier one. Throw on a suit, shirt, and some nice shoes and you’re already 90% of the way there. But jeans and a t-shirt can fall anywhere from disheveled slob to street style superstar…

Gift Guide: The Wet Shaving Man

Have you started Christmas shopping yet? Not me. I’m still working on ideas. I think most guys are still in the “idea” stage at this point. Or maybe you’re just leaving the gift-buying up to someone else this year. Starting today I’m going to give bring some help to your holiday shopping procrastination. I’m going to publish four gift guides this week. The initial goal is to obviously assist with the holiday shopping, but these are guides that can be used year-round whenever you need a little gift giving inspiration…
